The cast of Scarborough YMCA s summer show is on a high after receiving support from Lloyd Dowson, Chartered Accountants, Tax and Business Advisors.

The main feature of the YMCA Theatre’s packed summer programme this year, Rock of Ages is presented by a cast of local young people, supported by a live five-piece band who are on-stage throughout each of the 18 performances.

Rock of Ages is set in Sunset Strip, Los Angeles, in 1987. It is the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in LA to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love.

The musical includes the songs Don’t Stop Believin’, We Built This City, The Final Countdown and I Want To Know What Love Is.

This production will take audiences back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair.

David Dowson, chairman of Lloyd Dowson, said: “We are delighted to support the young people at the YMCA as we realise what a huge and positive difference this organisation makes in our community.”

Steve Marsh, executive director of Scarborough YMCA, said: “The help we have received from Lloyd Dowson is exemplary. They really understand and value the work we do to support local young people through sport, theatre, performing arts and volunteering.”

Rock of Ages runs at the YMCA, St Thomas Street, each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from July 26 to September 1. Tickets from box office on 01723 506750.
